"Loneliness is proof that your innate search for connection is intact."

Day 39:

Over the last couple of days this whole lockdown thing has hit me pretty hard. I think maybe I was focussing so hard on just getting shit done and filling our days with activities to help us get through to keep myself and Opeie reasonably healthy mentally, that I hadn't really given myself time to think in depth about what's going on. the last 2 days have been quiet days, with less activities and my mind has been racing. I was lying on the bed with Opeie this afternoon thinking about how much I missed Becci and I was getting a little upset, then the post came. Opeie raced downstairs (because the postman arriving is one of the days highlights in this new world) and there were cards addressed to each of us. They really couldn't have come at a better time and the messages inside really cheered the both of us up. The lovely surprise obviously made me miss her even more but I smiled knowing that as soon as this is all over she'll be there waiting for me and I'm not going to let her go.
